Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (76 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Spend your money on a GOOD guitar like this and not one of the cheaper models."
Sound: This one sounds pretty good for the money. I don't have a lot to compare it to, but I've played a few higher dollar fenders and low dollar martins and this guitar sounds just as good as those. Ibanez was my other choice, but this one just sounded better. Feature: Not many features. Just an acoustic. Quality: I have a friend who has an older model Yamaha that is almost exactly like the one I have. and it is about 30 years old. It sounds just as good as mine which is only a year or two old. The bridge is still good and the frets have held up over the years. Value: This is a great guitar for the money. I think it is about the lowest dollar solid spruce top you can get and the solid tops sound much better than laminate ones. I wouldn't say it is worth more than $200 just because I think you can get an acoustic/electric from Yamaha for $250. But if it was a Fender, it would probably be a $300 guitar. Manufacturer Support: No problems. The Wow Factor: It looks good, it would be cool if they made a mahogany color or some sort of darker brown. Overall: This thing should last awhile. The next guitar I buy will probably be in the $700-$900 range, but for the beginner/casual player, this is a nice guitar. So much better than the $99 specials that everyone seems to waste their money on.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
